Arabs throw explosives at IDF in Jenin

An IDF force operating in Jenin last night encountered resistance from local Arabs, who threw homemade explosives at the forces.

The soldiers reacted by firing tear gas grenades, rubber bullets, and real bullets at the attackers.

Several of the attackers were hit.

Palestinian sources reported that a 19-year-old Palestinian Arab was killed by the IDF fire, though this has yet to be confirmed by the IDF.

The IDF confirmed, however, that two Palestinian attackers had been wounded.
